If there’s one thing we love more than hosiery, it’s smartie-pants hosiery that uses modern technology to make our lives easier. Caffeine tights made headlines a few years ago for their anti-cellulite properties, and now the science behind hosiery design is more advanced than ever.
So sit back, relax and forget all about the gym- here’s a round up of hosiery that could revolutionise your life…
We know it sounds too good to be true, but the range of hosiery and shapers from ShaToBu really can help you burn more calories with no extra effort on your part. The boffins at the brand have designed a range of hosiery and shapewear that use resistance band technology to make your body work harder as you go about your day to day life – without you even realizing. Still not convinced? Check out the full ShaToBu explanation for all the science behind these amazing calorie burning tights.
Unsightly orange peel skin can be the absolute bane of even the slimmest woman’s life – how often have you worked your derrière off for months in preparation for the beach season, only to realise that you still dread donning that bikini in fear of others spying a telltale ripple? The Charnos Emana tights have been clinically proven to increase collagen synthesis by 9% and skin elasticity by 8%, as well as giving an 11% improvement on signs of cellulite! Again, feel free to check out the benefits of Emana for the nitty gritty on the magical fibre used to make these incredible anti cellulite tights.
Charnos didn’t stop there, either. They also created the skin perfecting Charnos Energising Support range. In a two month blind trial conducted by Charnos, results clearly demonstrated that support hosiery makes legs look and feel fabulous. But the main draw of this revolutionary collection is that as well as all of the benefits that support brings (see below for more of us waxing lyrical about support tights), the capsule collection of three products has been treated with a unique microencapsulate blend of Vitamin E (containing anti-oxidant properties which help to protect the skin from premature ageing), Sea Kelp (rich in nutrients known to improve skin tone and stimulate blood flow – which helps to reduce the build-up of cellulite) and Shea Butter (a natural oil helping to keep the skin soft and hydrated). The result? Soft, smooth, revitalized legs ready to be put on show!
In our humble opinion, support hosiery is the most underrated antidote to a hectic schedule we’ve ever come across. Formerly the preserve of the older woman or “problem” legs, newer products on the market like the aforementioned Charnos Energising Support range and the luxurious Falke Support collection have turned preconceptions on their head. Support tights work by using graduated compression (which means that they are woven to be tighter around the ankle, slightly less around the calf and less again at the top of the leg), which forces blood back to the heart and can alleviate aching feet and legs, as well as improving blood circulation. We’ve always said than independent women support themselves… and now from exhausted mums to busy professionals, it’s easier than ever before!
So whether it’s a little TLC for weary legs or tights as good as a beauty treatment for your skin, treat yourself to one of these miracle workers… or stock up on them all! Who knew science could be so fun?
